|Bruce Jenner talking to Renée Richards, the person who inspired him over 40ys. ago|
Renée Richards (born August 19, 1934) is an American ophthalmologist, author and former professional tennis player.
In 1975, Richards underwent sex reassignment surgery. She was denied entry into the 1976 US Open by the United States Tennis Association, citing an unprecedented women-born-women policy.
She disputed the ban, and the New York Supreme Court ruled in her favour in 1977.
This was a landmark decision in favour of transsexual rights.Through her fight to play tennis as a woman, she challenged gender roles and became a role model and spokesperson for the trans-gender community.
